The response of faba bean seedlings to the combined effects of increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations ([CO2]) and solar UV-B irradiance was studied using open-top chambers transparent to UV-B radiation. The purpose of the study was to determine whether effects of increased [CO2] on growth and physiology are modified by the present solar UV-B fluence rate(More)
Due to anthropogenic influences, both solar UV-B irradiance at the earth's surface and atmospheric [CO2] are increasing. To determine whether effects of CO2 enrichment on faba bean (cv. Minica) growth are modified by UV-B radiation, the effects of enhanced [CO2] on growth and photosynthetic characteristics, were studied at four UV-B levels. Faba bean was(More)
Seedlings of Vicia faba L. (cv. Minica) were grown in a factorial experiment in a greenhouse. The purpose of the study was to determine whether CO2 enrichment and supplemental UV-B radiation affect leaf optical properties and whether the combined effects differ from single factor effects. Seedlings were grown at either 380 μmol mol-1 or 750 μmol mol-1 CO2(More)
The effect of different concentrations of lead was investigated in two different ways in the leaves of Helianthus annuus plants. In the first way, removed leaf discs from 5-wceks old plants were floated in 0.05, 0.25, 2.50 and 5.00 mM PbNO3 solutions for 2, 4 and 6 days. In addition, the chlorophyll content and the activity of peroxidase enzyme which are(More)
